Thomas Henderson focuses his practice on representing policyholders in suing insurance companies for bad faith and getting insurance companies to pay what the insurance policy promises to pay. Tom spent the first 20 years of his practice representing the insurance companies, answering their questions about whether the policy provided coverage for various claims, and even defending them when they were sued.
Tom uses this unusual background to his clients’ advantage because he knows where the weak spots are, where the smoking guns are hidden and how best to structure his clients’ cases to maximize the potential of getting the insurance companies to pay.
Tom represents both individual consumers and businesses in their pursuit of insurance claims. For consumers, this includes auto, uninsured and underinsured motorist, homeowners, renters, liability, property, health, disability and life insurance claims.
For businesses, this includes, auto, liability, property, lost profits, directors and officers, professional liability and construction insurance claims. These claims can range from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars.
Tom has achieved great success getting insurance companies to pay money on claims that had previously been denied, and in getting insurance companies to pay much more money than they previously offered. Tom has won many jury verdicts for his clients in insurance bad faith cases, including obtaining verdicts that included punitive damages.
Tom was admitted to practice in Colorado in October of 1987. Tom is a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the Bad Faith subcommittee of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, the American Bar Association, and the Denver and Arapahoe County Bar Associations. Tom also lectures on insurance bad faith and insurance coverage to groups of policyholders.
